Altared Spaces Exhibit 2016

Date: 
Monday, October 31, 2016 (All day) to Saturday, November 5, 2016 (All day)
 

As always, it is totally free to come in and see out exhibits, if there is not an event going on!

During Day of the Dead, altars built by people across the local area will be on display.

Day of the Dead altars are built during Dia de los Muertos to honor the lives of those who have passed. They are often quite beautiful creations, constructed with love and care. Creating these altars is one of the most important traditions during Day of the Dead in Mexico and in Mexican-American communities around the globe.

If you would like to honor someone you knew (a friend or relative) then please contact Steve Liggett at steve@livingarts.org. Please put in the Subject Line "I'd like to build an ofrenda". Include your cell phone number and who your altar will be built to honor.

 

 

On Tuesday, October 4 at 7pm

This year we offer a special time for people who might need a little encouragement and/or information about Day of the Dead altars with a discussion on the subject by Artistic Director Steve Liggett from the Dia de Los Muertos Committee. The discussion will also feature a video shot during the Day of the Dead in Oaxaca, Mexico in 1992 by Steve. Come and learn more about this amazing celebration of life and remembering those who have passed on through the making installation artwork.
